In a few words

Paddling enthusiasts can take their canoes and kayaks out on the Noire Nord-Ouest river. The one- to two-day itinerary starts at Talon lake and ends at Frontière lake (30 km). It is not necessary to paddle the whole route since launch sites to get on and off the water are available along the way. A shuttle service is offered for the return trip and rustic campsites are available free-of-charge. This river, whose difficulty is intermediate, features obstacles in some areas, therefore portage trails are available. The last part (7 km) is in calm waters so return trips are possible. It is the ideal place to learn canoeing or kayaking. Canoes and kayak rental is offered
at the reception office in Sainte-Lucie-de-Beauregard. Note: canoe rental depends on level of river. Boat rental: $6/hour, $20/half-day, $35/day, free for those with their own boats. Rabaska and pontoon rides are also available.

    Active Nature Canoe on the Noire Nord-Ouest river in the Parc des Appalaches with Barrons-Nous.

    Paddling on the most beautiful rivers in Quebec is one of our many passions. Venture on the calm waters of a splendid green river, approach the small remote corners in absolute calm, observe the fishes, the herons and the wild geese ... We like to borrow a boat the time of an afternoon for us to recharge our batteries and leave our worries of everyday life over the water.
